* An interesting trend has popped up amid the MahouSenseiNegima fanfic authors. After Creator/ShadowCrystalMage popularized the idea of crossing over Negima with MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha, a few other authors have taken up the mantle. Currently, Mage and two others are writing stories in which negi is sent to Uminari as a teacher for Nanoha after the events of A's. Ironically, one of the copycats, Zephyr-Fiction's FanFic/EqualAndOppositeAttractions, has garnered the most press. Mainly this is because Mage has many more projects on his plate.

** Many [[FandomSpecificPlot competition stories]], "Starring You" and otherwise, borrow liberally from the early ''Total Drama'' fanfic, ''Fanfic/{{Total Drama Comeback|Series}}''. Writers of ''Comeback''-influenced stories commonly acknowledge that influence or even dedicate their stories to its author.

* ''TheLandBeforeTime'' fanfiction. Considering that the series is set in a relatively limited environment (prehistoric times), whenever one writer does something different that gets respect, you can expect to see a ''lot'' of clones pop up. Such types include war stories, {{time travel}} stories, crossovers. Not that these fics are necessarily ''bad'', but they tend to all come at once as trends, resulting in you finding that all new fanfics lately are centred around Chomper perhaps, while you were particularly hoping for something based more on the main five characters.

* Common Itachi/Sakura plots in {{Naruto}} fic involve Sakura running off to get Sasuke back from Orochimaru's clutches, and getting captured/used as bait for Naruto by Itachi. Many cite [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2633721/1/Metamorphosis Metamorphosis]] as inspiration or influence.

* The ''{{Naruto}}'' fandom has started a following of SelfInsert via {{Reincarnation}} fanfics - the AuthorAvatar[=/=]OriginalCharacter is reborn into the Narutoverse. Although the first noteworthy story to try this might well be ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4842566/1/Only_a_Moron Only a Moron]]'' by swabloo (which actually veers into DarkFic territory at times), this trope is applied to ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7347955/1/Dreaming_of_Sunshine Dreaming of Sunshine]]'' by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/315314/Silver_Queen Silver Queen]]. In addition to having a likeable, relatable person as protagonist (Shikako Nara is ''no'' MarySue), ''[=DoS=]'' touched on other (innovative at the time, at least) elements: the person being "chakra sensitive", since having memories of their past life means chakra is an unfamiliar feeling, like an extra limb; trying to ''not'' change things too much because they're aware of how the ripple affect could render their knowledge useless; feelings of alienation from their friends (even while befriending even Naruto); not remembering all significant details due to fading memories over time; and most of all managing to focus on the protagonist without making it feel like the world (or story) revolves around them.

** ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfAnElderGod'' and ''Fanfic/ShinjiAndWarhammer40K'' started the "Badass Shinji" trend that ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'', ''Fanfic/NobodyDies'' and dozens of Eva fics copied. Similarly, ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'' popularized the "''Dark'' Badass Shinji" stereotype, spawning a bunch of stories in which Shinji was an anti-hero.

** Speaking of ''Franchise/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' fanfiction, several people have noticed that ''Fanfic/AdviceAndTrust'' caused a small but noticeable surge of Eva fanfictions appearing on to the forum where it was first posted.
